For a bit over a week now, Firefox has been crashing and crashing the entire computer with it. I don't have issues with crashes or reboots in any other software and I've been using firefox for well over 15 years. I've tried disabling some plug-ins (Dark Reader, Simple Translate and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials), while still keeping uBlock as I consider it necessary (although any other ad/tracker-blocker will do). Really I use all these four plugins all the time. These sudden reboots don't happen with cpu load starting to go up or anything, it just turns off the computer and restarts it. It also only happens on certain websites like coinbase.com, twitter.com and I think it has happened on a swedish price comparison website, a once on a game sales listing website (G2A). It never happens right away, but after anything from 1 to 10 minutes of being on those sites.

It never crashes on youtube.com or bilibili.com, neither on nexusmods.com or mail.google.com or support.mozilla.org. I suspect it's limited to certain self-updating pages with lists or tickers in elements that update regularly, I first noticed it when i kept open a tab with the bitcoin course on coinbase.com over a week ago. I have recently gotten a newer very powerful graphics card, but I think this started before I installed it.

Any suggestions what to do about this?

Hi,

When I type a search query into the address bar on any Facebook Group and press enter nothing happens. I need to try 2-3 times (sometimes more).

I've tried clearing cache, removing all data, program files, re-installed, but this didn't make any difference. Same on Firefox Developer. Microsoft Edge works.

Hi again,

Please ignore the steps mentioned in my previous email, it can be quite confusing. I have outlined the exact steps in detail below:

Step 1: On the address bar, visit: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox You will see a page as displayed below.

Step 2: Copy the Internal UUID.

Step 3: Vist: moz-extension://<Internal UUID>/popup.html You will see a page as displayed below

Step 4: Open the Web Developer Tools (Command + Option + I)

Step 5: Enter the password and click on "Unlock"

Step 6: Copy everything you see on the Console logs and paste it here or screenshot them to us.

Important: Do not try reinstalling the wallet.

Regards

When I open a pdf document from a website online, all colours turn violet. The original colour is just shown on the miniature view on the left side. Every time I open the browser again, there different pages shown with the original colour, but when I click on them they stay violet. When I download the document, it has the correct colour.

I have tried to change the colour setting for designs with high contrast, but there is no difference.

Following that last update to Firefox, the Facebook game Criminal Case stopped working properly. When certain things are done in the game the screen in the game is shrunk and doesn't occupy all the space it should do. When this happens, none of the buttons on that screen in the game work. In the attached image, the in-game screen should occupy all the black area that surrounds it.

Other players of the game have reported similar problems when using Firefox. I am currently playing the game successfully in Opera GX browser.

I set FireFox to automatically save PDF links. Also I disabled the annoying downloads pop-up. When I click on a link, though, the screen briefly flashes white. The cursor stays in-place, so I can work under this condition, but it's an annoying distraction. Especially since nothing is being opened, so I'd expect the FireFox view to just stay as-is.

I've seen postings complaining about their blackscreen-themes flashing white when they do this. If I read right, the posted solutions were just to flash black instead of white. That's not what I'm trying to do here, I want to suppress the flash.

Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.

Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.

Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.

Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)

Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.

Hi All,

I just started running a dual monitor set up on macOS 12.4. I have updated Firefox to version 102.0.1.

I'm running into an issue where if I want to have a video playing from a browser in full screen on one monitor, I lose the menu bar and access to the dock on the other monitor. I have set them up so that they behave as separate spaces but the issue persists. It should be noted that this only occurs when I'm trying to use the web browser on the second monitor. My impression of what's happening is the browser thinks that since it's in full screen on one monitor, it should be on the second screen as well. I want them both to act independently of one another and retain access to the menu bar and dock on the second screen.

I've trialed this with Brave Browser and Safari and neither of them have the same issue which leads me to believe with overwhelming probability that the issue I'm experiencing is isolated to Firefox.

I've included a screenshot from my second monitor. On my primary monitor I have a YouTube video in full screen. I think you can see from the screenshot that the Menu Bar has disappeared from the second display. I also have the Dock set to automatically hide and when the video is full screen on the primary monitor, the Dock will not un-hide itself on the second screen. Unfortunately clicking within the browser will not restore the Menu Bar and access to the Dock. Is this atypical behavior?

I appreciate whatever help you're able to provide.
